Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a born collector. America’s 32nd president spent a lifetime collecting everything from stamps and coins to Hudson River art and rare books and manuscripts. But one of FDR’s greatest passions was his enormous naval and maritime collection.

Herman Eberhardt, Supervisory Museum Curator at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, joins us to explore Franklin Roosevelt’s engagement with the sea and reveal treasures from his naval and maritime collection that provide insights into this vital aspect of his life. FDR’s special relationship with the U.S. Navy will also be highlighted, including his affection for the U.S. Naval Academy (which he had once hoped to attend).
